Science and Stories: Aaron Hirsh Tells his Way to the Sea

09/26/2013 7:00 pm

In Telling Our Way to the Sea, biologist and naturalist Aaron Hirsh describes a decade’s worth of trips taken with his wife and students to the inlets and islands of Mexico’s Sea of Cortez. In lush, lyrical prose, Hirsh’s book—adventure, exploration, local history, and science, patiently, precisely explained—explores the overlap of human and natural histories at the place where the land meets the sea.

"In Mr. Hirsh's telling, science itself is a narrative—a living, breathing enterprise conducted by real, fallible people who are simply doing their best to understand the world."-- The Wall Street Journal

Aaron Hirsh is chair of the Vermilion Sea Institute. He is a research associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado-Boulder, and his essays have appeared in literary journals, The New York Times, and The Best American Science Writing.
